Richard Bedford Bennett (Prime Minister; President of the Privy Council; Secretary of State for External Affairs)

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. BENNETT:

With respect to questions 17 and 18, may I say that the contribution of food made to the relief commission in Saskatchewan and to other portions of western Canada were made without reference to the federal government, and we are not in a position to answer those questions. The relief commission in Saskatchewan was appointed by the provincial authorities. I can give later, if it is so desired, a report as to the number of carloads that were shipped, but I cannot undertake to indicate in detail what the cars contained nor the points at which they originated.

Questions dropped.

BUSINESS OF THE HOUSE

INQUIRY AS TO LEGISLATION TO BE INTRODUCED DURING PRESENT SESSION


On the orders of the day:


LIB

William Lyon Mackenzie King (Leader of the Official Opposition)

Liberal

Right Hon. W. L. MACKENZIE KING (Leader of the Opposition):

May I ask my

right hon. friend if he would be able to give to the house at an early date-I would not expect an answer to-day-a statement of any further legislation that is likely to be brought down this session. We have now an indication of the budget resolutions to be considered, and the order paper, I think, contains mention of all other legislation of which we have had any intimation up to the present, apart from what may be based upon the reports of committees. If my right hon. friend could indicate at an early date what if anything in the way of further legislation is to be introduced, I think it would facilitate the work of the house generally.
